Polly Scattergood

The twenty-something was born and raised near Colchester and began concocting her bittersweet brew aged 11 when she found a guitar under the stairs in her parent’s house. Built around fractious yet pretty guitar and piano (she plays a Stylophone and accordion, too), Polly’s peculiar talent has brought comparisons with Kate Bush.

Which song do you listen to when...
you come home from the club?
Maps - So Low So High
you go to a club?
Faithless - God Is A DJ

Has many happy memories for me. 

you cook?

I don’t cook much, and when I do I have to concentrate very hard not to burn it. So I don’t listen to music at the same time!

you are in a depressive mood?
Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

This is one of my favorite songs and it’s written by Leonard Cohen who is one of my favorite writers.

you drive a car late at night?
Joni Mitchell - River
you jog?
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Cheated Hearts

This always makes me run faster.

you miss London?
Neil Young - Old Man
you meet your parents?
Vampire Weekend - I Stand Corrected

I just love it as a tune. It's so cheeky.

you sit in a plane?
Mylo - In My Arms
you sit by the river?
Leonard Cohen - Bird On A Wire
you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Band Of Horses - Is There A Ghost
you sit in the subway?
Maps - You Don't Know Her Name

As it’s a great tune to watch the world go by.

you are on the tour bus?
Radiohead - High And Dry

Because it sounds beautiful with an open road ahead. 

you wake up?
The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots

 Because for someone who isn’t much of a morning person, it’s the only way to start a day!

you wash your hair?

I don’t listen to music while washing my hair. As in my experience electrical equipment and water cause problems!

If you were stranded on a deserted island you would...
take these three CDs/records with you:
Joni Mitchell - Blue
Bonnie «Prince» Billy - I See The Darkness
Portishead - Dummy
take these three DVDs along:

«Twin Peaks» / «Six Feet Under» / «Finding Neverland» by Marc Forster

start to learn these three things:

how to be alone / how to cook / how to survive without a piano

miss these three things the most about living in a city:

people / stories / life

get these three pets:

a monkey / a hedgehog / a butterfly

learn these three songs by heart:
«Puff The Magic Dragon»
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine
take these three tools with you:

wire / a saw / some sandpaper. Then I could try and make a little guitar! If that fails I could use the sandpaper as a nail file.
